On August 14, 2016, The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) issued the renewed Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) Multi Sector General Permit (MSGP) Number TXR050000, which authorizes the discharge of stormwater associated with industrial activity. This renewed permit supersedes and replaces TPDES General Permit No. TXR050000 issued on August 14, 2011. Existing permittees must submit a notice of intent (NOI) or No Exposure Certification (NEC) form to renew the coverage, as applicable, no later than November 14, 2016. All MSGP authorizations not renewed by November 13, 2016 will be terminated. The renewed MSGP would continue the authorization for industrial facilities in Texas for five years from the effective date of the permit.
